    You're welcome :) definitely keep on the doctors! I was 24 when it happened. I heard the same thing about reducing salt. Keep weighing yourself every morning just to keep a check on things. I hope you get an easy answer soon!

    I was in Yaz for years. I experienced severe swelling (pitting edema) which started in my ankles, then went to my feet and slowly moved it's way up my entire body. If you've been to a doctor and they can't seem to find anything ask to have an echocardiogram done (basically an ultrasound of your heart). There was liquid in the lining of my heart which caused the swelling. Still have no idea to this day if it was caused by Yaz, but it might be a start.
